Where to run in Pattaya


TGluvver

Recommended Posts

I'm in a routine of running 4 to 5 km every couple of days at the moment and I'm not really a treadmill kinda guy.

 

Does anyone know of good running tracks or parklands in Pattaya where I can have a decent jog without being bowled over crossing a road (with my earphones in I go into my own world).

 

Cheers

most guys do beach rd - from one end to the other and back would be 4km's I would think

Farang = Walking ATM. TG's push the right buttons and money comes out. PIN = BBBJ

Not a bad idea - I could time my sprints for where the ladyboys hang out :P

I used to do it every morning a couple of years back, from the information centre near Walking Street to where it turns to head up to the Dolphin roundabout and back is 5.5 kms.

 

From the same start point to Soi 6 and back is 4 km.

 

If you would like to mix your running with some drinking and socializing you could also attend one or more of the Hash House Harrier runs here in Pattaya, there is a run every Monday with the PH3, bus takes you out and back, cost is 350 baht and leaves from outside the Family Mart across 2nd Rd from The Avenue shopping complex at 3.30pm every Monday, their runs at this time of year, will be around the 6km mark. If you choose this option you will be greeted by my happy smiling face when you sign up, as I do the sign ups on site.

PS: There is a Pattaya Jungle Hash run today Sunday 7th, bus leaves from the same place at 3pm, I am the Grand Master of that hash, plenty of Aussies at both of these hashs, one of today's hares is an Aussie

LOL - its been lady boys galore the last few nights. I always walk beach rd when heading out at night, tends to build the thirst up more.

That park is the best for running, I have been there many times, but you will be running uphill/downhill most of the time.

 

Many people go running there, mostly Thais.

 

There are 2 main areas for running: the hill with the big Budha on top of it and another nearby hill with a helicopter parking lot. There are great views from the top too.

 

Here are a few pics I took this year.

Pattaya is not just one more place where we can enjoy our favourite hobby, Pattaya is the sacred land where we can practise our religion.

I'm the same way, even when I was a much fatter bastard on my last couple of trips I would always walk from the six to Walking Street to get ready fir a big night

I like running down Beach Road early in the morning (07.00-08.00) before it gets too hot. You see some interesting sights at that time of day, some of them left overs from the previous night and some of them early starters looking for their first baht of the day.

 

The park looks good, will check that out next trip.

i usually run on the beach rd path and then continue down Walking Street. that were you see a lot of ladyboys leaving Insomnia. they are actual fun because some try to run along side me. in good fun they see me every morning

when i want a callange i run to the park for some real good hill training. i'm here now trying to get my run on but only could do 2.2 miles i got to get used to the heat

I follow the baht bus route up the hill to jomptein beach..At the beach i chuck a right that goes for about 2k's till a small car park... Then i head towards Patty over the big hill and park that is pictured previously. ...I like that run because it has lots of variations...Good way to clear the brain of beer....
